4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

In many ways, this is a hands-down, 5-star destination resort. It has the terrific location,looking out at the Charges Rifver, and it has fantastic architecture. The main buiding has ceilings at least 60 to 70 feet high, with some of the rain forest plants and shrubs brought inside around the walkways and little curving bridges-- and hugely tall windows to...

We spent three nights here and I basically don't have any negative things to say about this hotel. We didn't have a breakfast or food plan included and I wish I would have had that option at the time of my booking. The restaurant is buffet or order off a menu. The monkey bar has a few good options for... More

We were part of a tour and checked in about 4:30. The room was spacious and well decorated and had a balcony with a great view of the grounds and Chagres River. Also a hammock on the balcony. A nice touch, that we rarely see repeated was that the ice bucket was full on arrival. One of the most comfortable... More

Did not spend the night at the resort but did get to go in the hotel and saw their amenities. It is very nice place. We did take the tour on the boat that takes on a boat ride to the... More

The views and the grounds of this resort were absolutely AMAZING! Lots of wildlife on the property. As others have said the hotel is in need of some updating but it is clean and the surrounding scenery is an easy distraction of any flaws. This was our 2nd hotel on our Caravan Panama Tour. Great location for a short bus... More

The wildlife is so abundant here you can't get out of the parking lot without adding many birds to your list. You have to have a guide to get into reptile, and butter fly enclosures and to ride the tram. Treat your clothes with Perethum spray and wear bug gaiters to keep chiggers, ticks and mosquito away. This will make... More

We had a great stay at the resort, and feel it deserves a 4-star rating, although it didn't start off on the right foot. We arrived late and were given a room near the end of the second floor of the old building (which is the wing behind the reception desk - closest to the tennis courts). We were shocked... More
